PFOer Tim and I have discussed using Chumbawamba’s “I fall down but I get up again” as a Monday Music Moment but, as he pointed out, some of the lyrics are, er, unsuitable for this kind of audience.
Nevertheless, resilience is a theme that comes up again and again in our Wisdom Stories and in the comments.
The younger me never thought of myself as particularly resilient nor, to be honest, as needing that quality of character.
I haven’t had many hard knocks in life, but I’ve had a few, and I have surprised myself with my ability — over time — to cope with them. And so today I want to give thanks for being able to get up again.
